One of the more unpleasant football matches I’ve ever attend was fifteen years ago in Jerusalem where the top club, Beitar, had a truly terrible reputation for a hardcore of racist fans, and so they proved to be, screaming Death to Arabs, waving blood-curdling banners, you get the ugly picture.

thought for the day, by rev dr giles fraser 

As a child of a priest, he hangs around church enough to pick up quite a lot of the grammar of Christianity. But he’s also Jewish, and so here in Israel where we’ve been living with my wife’s family over the last few months, Louis has been exposed to all the recent religious festival, Rosh Hashahah Yom Kppuur and now Succot. Over the weekend he was helping his mum decorate our newly-erected succah, and learning how these distinctive shelters remind Jews of the story of when they were living in temporary accommodation whilst wandering the desert after the Exodus.”
